“The move into positive inflation is an encouraging sign for the UK’s economy”, said Sue Robinson, Director of the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA), responding to the release of inflation figures for May 2015. The NFDA represents franchised car and commercial vehicle retailers across the UK.

Robinson continued “Although the UK is once again experiencing inflation, it is extremely low at just 0.1%. This should not only boost household spending power but also benefit NFDA members, as it will help keep the cost of cars affordable.”
